Golden accessories

These days I get a lot of nice comments from strangers on my watch and on my ear studs which usually leave me puzzled as I don't know how to deal with compliments in general. └(★o★)┐One lady even told me that I have great style and I felt so uncomfortable, since I couldn't believe that out of all people I would get positive comments about the way I dress etc. Unbelievable... (◎_◎;) So yeah, these are the items that I'm talking about. The watch is from Michael Kors and the ear studs are from a random shop in Hongkong which I had picked up for little money. The quality is really okay, though!! (☆▽☆)

Honestly, when I was younger I didn't like gold as much as I do right now. I thought it doesn't suit me since it tends to give off this old lady feel. haha. (☆o◎)

Okay, I'm now off to lunch with a friend. In case you're wondering, I'm quite active these days as well, it feels like I'm only at home to catch my eight hour sleep. (・∀・) BTW, the other day I bumped into my old boss and she wanted to meet up with me and a few other co-workers for lunch or so.... OMG I don't know if I really want that.. don't get the wrong idea she was really nice and such but still.... the idea feels kinda weird to me. ヽ(-`Д´-)ノ I'm also not a huge fan of business dinners...

Alterra Limited Edition Cherry Blossom

Just wanted to make a quick post since I spotted the newest Alterra limited edition in my drugstore! ヾ(*⌒ヮ⌒*)ゞ
When I first saw the preview on Liv's blog I really wanted to purchase the entire collection!! haha! (☆▽☆) However, when I saw the actual display yesterday I don't know.... I was kinda... underwhelmed to be honest. In the end I only picked up a lip gloss. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

I have mentioned earlier that I absolutely adore anything that has cherry blossom print on it, but this time the packaging couldn't make me buy more things from the collection. haha.

Even though I was in a rush I still managed to include some swatches. (*≧ω≦)

This gloss doesn't contain any shimmer which is a huge plus to me. It leaves a super shiny and glossy finish without being too sticky. However, the downside would be the lasting power. You have to re-apply quite frequently which I personally don't mind too much but I know that some people do care for the lasting time so I figured I need to mention this as well.

Catrice Nail Lacquer#170 I Scream Peach!

Okay, today's confession time! I'm madly in love with nail polishes! It's a fact that I don't like to admit but seeing how my collection grows make me feel incredibly guilty. (。-`ω´-) Actually, I'm kind of hoarding nail polishes as I'm usually too lazy to paint my nails. Sometimes when I feel gloomy/upset/whatever negative emotions I take a look at my colorful paint pots and it will instantly lift up my mood. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) hehe.

However, since I prefer natural looks all the way, I mostly like to wear nude tones. But then it doesn't mean that I don't purchase more colorful shades. ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ The other day, I walked out the drugstore with this nice peachy, coral nail polish. Actually, I had wanted to buy turquoise but I think that the color I ended up buying is more wearable for me.

It's called I Scream Peach! #170 and I believe that I paid around EUR 2.50 for one bottle which is soooo cheap and affordable. 。◕‿◕。

And this is how it looks on me. Excuse the sloppy application... I know that I'm not good at painting my nails or anything beauty related. The only thing that I can do perfectly is my eyeliner. haha. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) ♫・*:.。. .。.:*・

Uhm.... I also apologize for my weird outfit as well, I was wearing my comfy home pants that day. As you can tell comfort is everything to me. hahahaha!! (ーεー)

Relaxing Sunday

Oh boy it feels like it's been ages since I've spent such a nice and relaxing day at home! Yes, at home. The past few weeks, no actually ever since I got back from Hongkong I had been out and about. Now I seriously feel so tired that I think it's about time to rest a bit. Actually, spending my Sunday in solitude isn't so bad as it sounds.(*TωT)

My brother come over to visit me and even helped me to do the laundry as I had posted on FB that I wasn't feeling too well due to hayfever. That was really sweet of him. I guess he wanted to take care of me in place of my mom who's in Hongkong right now. (☆▽☆) He even brought me some chocolate and green tea with lemon flavour. (*・∀-)☆

Speaking of chocolate, the other day I spotted these at the supermarket and of course, I couldn't resist. However, it feels so weird that you encouter limited editions almost everywhere in your daily life.

Come on, what's so special about these M&M's that it deserves to be called limited edition? (☆o◎) Just because of the color selection? It's ridiculous. However, I still bought a pack of it... Epic fail.... (Hey, I was craving for M&M's that day so please bear with me!) (*ω*|||)

Oh and while I'm talking about food, yesterday I met up with a friend and we went to a Japanese restaurant. I had donburi and have tried  納豆 for the first time. ^O^ I wouldn't necessarily call it yummy but it wasn't so bad either.

On the menu it says that the dish is supposd to be sticky. lol It was so true!! My friend had something with clams. Admittedly, I find that her dish looked gross at first sight but it was very yummy indeed!!

Alverde Eyeliner Pencil #07 Blue

Today I want to talk about the Alverde pencil eyeliners, I own a few of these, however, I think they vary a lot quality-wise. I picked the shade 07 in blue to write about, because I couldn't find my purple eyeliner any longer... First of all, I like to mention that I really love the pencil eyeliners from the limited editions, since they're nicely pigmented. Sadly I can't say the same for their regular editions.... I bought a purple and a blue shade, both are kinda hard to work with, plus pigmentation was pretty bad, too. Oh, I even had one in white as well which I originally purchased to use on my waterline, but soon abandoned this idea due to low pigmentation. Overall, pretty disappointing.

My April haul.

In April I was so busy that I forgot to stalk the drugstore. (And yes, I know that it's already May... lol) Under normal circumstances I will pay my favorite drugstore a weekly visit but I had no time to do so.... I usually don't like to do hauling posts (not talking about my HK haul, though) but have decided to show the few items that I bought anyway.

  • A newly released blush brush from Ebelin
  • Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in the shade #25
  • Essence eyebrow gel
  • Catrice Defining Duo Blush #050 Apricot Smoothie
  • Alverde Lipstick #10 Trendy Coral (Limited Edition)

I will let you know how the products are, since I haven't tried out a single item, yet..... However, I'm very curious if the concealer works for me or not. I wanted to repurchase my favorite Maybelline Mineral Concealer, but it was unavailable. Don't know if it's discontinued or simply out of stock. *gulp* The blush brush looks quite nice. It's made of synthetic bristles(?) and feels super soft. I hope it's good even though I don't expect too much from it since it was like 3 EUR or so.
